Ambulance trial: NDC accuses Attorney-General of judicial interference

The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused the Attorney-General, Godfred Yeboah Dame, of attempting to manipulate judicial proceedings against the party’s Minority Leader in Parliament, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson.

The NDC in a statement signed by its National Chairman, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, reiterated a claim made by a witness in the trial, Richard Jakpa, in court that the Attorney-General had met with him several times and pressured him to implicate Dr. Forson.

“The NDC is deeply scandalised by this clear case of persecution against the Leader of the party’s Caucus in Parliament who has been at the forefront of our struggle against the misrule of the oppressive and despotic Akufo-Addo/Bawumia NPP regime,” the statement said.

The party accused the President Akufo-Addo government of desperation to victimize political opponents, saying: “This revelation goes to confirm legitimate and long-held suspicion of the devious modus operandi of Godfred Dame and the government he represents.”

The NDC vowed to hold a press conference next week to present “incontrovertible evidence” on the matter, warning: “We will stop at nothing in pursuing this matter to its logical conclusion and ensuring that justice is done.”

The Attorney-General’s office has not yet commented on the allegations.
